Shecosister Stephanie Dodge has a way with words

Name: Stephanie Dodge

Title: Content Strategist

What is at the heart of your business?
Putting complex concepts into accessible language, and simplifying digital experiences.

Why did you join a women’s coworking and wellness community?
I joined to stay motivated and centered as I look for a good fit for my next career move. Being around other people who are working hard is very motivating, and the reflection exercises helps me keep my natural anxiety in check.

What do you wish to give and/or receive from this community?
I hope to support others in being kinder to ourselves and respecting our own mental and physical health needs. Once those are taken care of, everything else comes more easily!

What does thriving look like for you?
Being excited to start my day and connect with driven women. Moving my body and feeling gratitude for what I have.

Shecosystem’s core values are: openness, community, collaboration, accessibility, sustainability, feminism, and wellness. Which of these resonates most with you and why?
All of them resonate, but the biggest would be “community”, “feminism” and “wellness”. It’s important to have a place where women can support each other and find the strength to fight impostor syndrome and self-doubt.

Tell us one way you integrate self-care into your working life:
I go for walks to clear my head. We all put way too much pressure on ourselves!

What’s your top piece of advice for other women entrepreneurs?
Be decisive in your language! Men aren’t conditioned to waffle and qualify their statements; why should we?

Anything else we should know about you?
I love rock climbing at Basecamp and horseback riding at Exhibition Place! Also I have a blind Boston Terrier who plays a mean game of fetch.
